Treetrunk

Treetrunk Records, hailing from MidWestern USA, accepts quality musical submissions from artists from all over the globe. Our original mission was to showcase ambient and particularly experimental ambient (such as fractal / generative) music. For some time we also expanded into the field of phonography or field recordings, for both raw recordings and manipulated recorded material. Finally we have opened the doors a bit to other genres, accepting various quality submissions, though we still prefe...

I have been working on my Generative-Iterative Python code for some time now. I use Python to process and mix sounds, often using many random processes. Generative-Iterative is, therefore, a sub-genre of Generative music that focuses on loop-based composition. In 11.2020, I perfected a technique of overdubbing through which I could automatically create tracks, in a manner of seconds. Music, in this way, could be mass-produced. The results were curated, and about 30% were retained, those of...

If showing compassion is silly and awkward, then showing it must require a person to be fearless. I think some of life's great experiences are like that. They are often mocked and take great bravery to perform, courage, too, to defend.  This release was extracted from a single live session in "Loud At 7th" studio, with no overdubs (though a Looper pedal was used with my keyboard). The session was performed 01.18.2023.

AN UNAUTHORIZED TRIBUTE TO RAPOON BY VARIOUS ARTISTS Why pay tribute to Robin Storey's Rapoon? As a listener, Robin's music was immediately interesting to me, because drone music as a genre was something I hadn't yet heard. Soon, I became captivated by this conversation between sounds-- samples interacting, some looped, others making unique or shorter appearances. Technically, then, this was musique concrete-- or largely that. It was also listenable-- very "musical" in a traditional...

"Sovereign" is mystified's tribute to Rapoon's excellent "Cold War: Drum 'N' Bass" double cd, out on Caciocavallo Records, 2001. Thomas of Mystified has been listening to Rapoon's album quite a bit of late, and inspired by it and recent international events, felt it would be appropriate to create an album hearkening back to the original-- though to resurrect or banish a spectre, that is one of the album's central questions.

Thomas Park took several scores of recordings of machines made using a contact microphone, in high fidelity, and ran them through a program that adds random processes to the sounds. He chose the 100 best outtakes, and trimmed them to make them usable. These sounds are fun for listening, and would be ideal for using as elements in music or sound design. If you would like to embark on a live mixing adventure, you can try mixing the first 30 sounds in real time with "The Machine Shop" .

Continuing in the Grid Resistor tradition, only recordings of machines were used in this release. The main sound comes from one long field recording of a mechanical box found in Grid Resistor's neighborhood on 6/9/2017. Supplemental images document the process of retrieving this recording.

Here are some samples I concocted many years ago. Most are fairly lo-fi and were made using various forms of digital processing. Or, you can experience a live mixing experience, featuring many of these sounds, at the "Lo-Fi Sample Station" .
